Chrysler Group factories in Detroit and Indiana were busy in January as production of the Chrysler 200, Dodge Avenger, Dodge Dart and SRT Viper rose 103.5% to 30,827. Avenger production rose 90.4% and nine new Vipers left the Conner Assembly Plant. Brampton finished the month 6.6% ahead of January 2012 with growth in scheduling Challenger and Charger assembly overcoming a cutback in Chrysler 300 output. A sharp decline in demand for the Fiat 500 and 500 Cabrio trimmed completions at the Toluca plant by 41.5%. Overall passenger car production grew to 54,839 units, an increase of 35.5% compared to January 2012. As a percentage of total light vehicle output, cars accounted for 31.7% last month, way ahead of the 21.8% slice of the pie they got last year. Total Chrysler Group production declined 6.7% in January, thanks to a 5.1% drop in light truck assembly. Activity at the Windsor plant..

This is really pretty good news.
Many have been worried about rising inventories leading to giveaway incentives and rebates.
These measures will keep inventory at acceptable levels, especially with the 500 and Grand Cherokee.
Also noted that Wrangler Unlimited production was increased. They are pretty hard to find in the desired trim and color in much of the western US.
